55'3' Oyster Marine Oyster 55


Description: ‘THOR’ was built in 1996 by Oyster Marine in Ipswich, England. She is 55’ long, has a 15’9” beam, draws 6’8”, and has a displacement of 50,000 pounds. She has a center cockpit and is cutter rigged. This means she has one mast (71’ tall), and two foresails. She is designed for shorthanded sailing with all lines leading to the cockpit. The primary winches are powered, as well as the mainsheet winch. All sails are roller furling, with the main powered into the mast and fore stay powered by ‘Harken’ roller furling. There is also a cruising chute and spinnaker pole. An ‘AB’ inflatable dingy with a 15hp, 2 stroke Johnson outboard is carried on davits at the stern. There is a stern boarding platform and a dodger as well as a bimini to provide protection from the sun and weather. For maneuverability, there is a bow thruster. She is white and all decks are teak. In total, she is stunning and unique in appearance, and exudes class.

‘THOR’ has a “raised deck salon”. This means that the salon is higher than on most boats, and is very light and airy inside with seven very large windows. The whole interior is done in light oak. There are three sleeping cabins: the captain’s aft, a guest cabin forward with a double “V” berth, and a starboard guest cabin with two single berths. All berths can be converted to sea berths with lee cloths. There are two bathrooms, both with separate shower areas. An aft utility/washing machine room is located behind the navigation station. The galley, aft of the companionway, has a convection microwave oven and a large refrigerator and separate freezer. The navigation station is to port of the salon.
